Hello there,

(English isn't my first Language, I hope it doesn't sound too bad, Sorry^^)

I was looking for a easy Solution to "modify" the Linux in my GPi Case to boot directly into PICO8. I don't want to use something like Retropie/Recalbox/Lakka, just a PICO8-Machine.

There was already a Project called PICOPI, which already assembled that. But it seems this Project doesn't exist anymore (Homepage is down; the Files I could find on archive.org doesn't seem to work anymore).

So I thought I write my own Script for this, which builds upon Raspbian, the Default-Linux-Distribution for Raspberry Pi (which builds upon GPi Case). I thought it could be useful for others, so I uploaded the Script^^.

While using this Script, you will be able to put your .p8-Files directly on the "boot"-Partition on the SD Card.

Script can be found on Github, including a Manual for using it:


EDIT: I also uploaded a Video on Youtube to show the Process:

just testing some Slopes in a Jump'n Run-like Prototype.

Nothing's really finished yet, I'm just testing around^^.

Mouse is required!

- Runs perfectly on Desktops.
- Web-Version on Desktops works, but Middle-Click only works on Fullscreen (or you're using Arrow-Keys to scroll).
- Mobile-Version doesn't work atm (no Mouse-Support).

Hey everybody! Just sharing a little Minesweeper-Clone that I've programmed^^.


  • Left-Click to open Field.
  • Right-Click to mark Field with a red or blue Flag.
  • Hold Middle-Click to scroll.
  • You can use Z to simulate Left-Clicks, X for Right-Clicks.
  • You can also use the Arrow-Keys to scroll.

Game should fully works as expected, hope I didn't forget anything^^.

A few GIFs:

Just playing on normal Difficulty:

Scrolling with Arrow-Keys and Mouse:

Showing "Custom"-Menu for own Width/Heigth/Mines:

Maybe I'll try to add "No-Mouse-Support" later, but I'm not sure about that. I must confess, the Sourcecode is quite "messy" at the Moment^^.

Hope you enjoy!

(Note: I already pushed it a few days ago, but I deleted it by accident^^)

Just programmed a simple "Menu Manager" and I thought, it can be useful for others. :)

It presents a way to write your own Menu, moving a cursor with Arrow-Keys (Up/Down), select an Entry (X) and call a Function.

The Sourcecode is well documented.



function menu.update() --Copy from Cartridge
function menu.draw() --Copy from Cartridge

function _update()

function _draw()

function entry_one()
 print("entry one selected!")

function entry_two()
 print("entry two selected!")

function entry_x()
 print("entry x selected!")

menu.entries = {
 "text entry one", entry_one,
 "text entry two", entry_two,
 "text entry x", entry_x}

Again, the Sourcecode is well documented :)


  1. Make sure you place

    on your Sourcecode. Not in a function, not even in _init(), it must be placed on the "highest level".

  2. Copy every function, that starts with "menu.", from that Cartridge to your Sourcecode. Thats
    function menu.start()
    function menu.update()
    function menu.draw()

  3. Make sure to call the "update"- and "draw"-function in _update() and _draw(). Don't worry, these Functions won't do anything, they only react after calling another Function ("menu.start()"):
    function _update()

    function _draw()

  4. Set your Screen-Position using "cursor" (it must be done at least once).

  5. Fill up the "menu.entries"-Array, representing your Menu.
    That Array contains at least two Values: Value "One" is the shown Text, Value "two" is a function that will be called, if player selects the Text. This goes on for Value "Three" (Text), Value "Four" (function) and so on...
    menu.entries = {
    "start game", start_game,
    "options", show_options,
    "credits", show_credits,

6. Make sure these functions at least exist, otherwise the Menu wouldn't shown properly:
function start_game()
[...more code...]
[...same for "show_options" and "show_credits"...]

  1. Finally, call that Menu:

You can change some Variables before calling "menu.start()":

menu.cursym = ">"

Change the Symbol used as Cursor.

menu.curclr = 10

The same for the used Cursor-Color.

menu.backclr = 0

Color to remove the Cursor-Symbol after moving it.

menu.cancel = [function]

A function that will be called, if the Player press Button "4". If this is set to "nil", nothing will happened.


Use it after calling "menu.start()". You can set the preselected Entry with this Variable. 0 means the first Entry, 1 the Second Entry and so on...

All this code is free to take, use, change, adapt, or whatever.

As said, I thought it can be useful for others^^.

Hello there,

Just presenting my other game here^^. "Spikes and Jumps" is a Platformer. Your Goal: Reach the end of every level and avoid everything that hurts.

It's some kind of a Standard-0-8-15-Jump'n Run. The Player doesn't have any special abilities, he can only walk and jump. You have infinite Lives, and you're walking from the left to the right^^.

Arrow-Keys to move.
Z to jump. Hold Z to jump higher.





Have Fun! :)
